Very cold today. There were a couple of open spots on the St. Clair River that concentrated waterfowl. I also drove some country roads and saw almost absolutely nothing! There is not much out there this winter. Certainly no redpolls in this part of the province. I even stopped at Moore WMA which is always reliable and it was completely dead. Probably the first time in almost 20 years that has happened! I could not go in too far since the river was running high, but it was deathly quiet.
A fair number of gulls were out on the ice off ICI as well. I did not bother to get the scope out to look at them since it was so cold.
One of about 8 Tundra Swans
Some Horned Larks were along the country roads and I managed to get close to one, as shown in the top photo.
